Blues Boy King died today. Son of a sharecropper, one of the greats. I can still hear that haunting voice along with Bono on When Love Comes to Town. He will be missed.

Given the recent events between his manager and his family, I hope they are able to settle his estate quietly and out of the spotlight.

A true legend. I always enjoyed him playing with Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Mr. King was 89 years old. He had won every award a blues man could hope to win the love and admiration of all of the great guitar players and musicians over the course of his career and a multitude of fans as well. I see no reason to pity Mr. King upon his passing.

Sad to see only 10 replies for such a great man. but 89.... thats pretty good... I consider anything over the average of 78 lucky.

Buddy Guy doesn't have much longer either.

Joe Bonamassa will probably live to be 113.
